Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Just when I thought we were past the pumpkin-everything time of year, I found a can of pumpkin in the pantry…. My initial plan was to make these into bars (which, technically, is what we’re starting out with here) but then at the last minute, […]

Whether you’re already an all-veg family or you need an entree for the vegetarians or vegans coming over (sometimes we really do get tired of making a meal out of sides), this wellington is a perfect accompaniment to any holiday feast! I have served it […]

Marinated Cheese and Olives ~ Game Night Snack

Our New Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Our New Favorite Pumpkin Pie

My pumpkin pies have definitely evolved over the years.  I followed the recipe on the Libby’s can forever and the pies were good but a little on the boring side. Then came a few years of folding in meringue and topping with pecans, which we […]

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

I love cranberry sauce so much I could almost just sit and eat it all by itself.  The only time I make it though is Thanksgiving.  Maybe that’s what makes it so special.  I like to prepare the sauce two days ahead of the big […]
